Book Description

August 11, 1995 0132308487 978-0132308489 3

Based on the author's nearly 30 years' of teaching introductory philosophy — and his observations of where beginning readers run into difficulty — this compact “primer” gives readers the basic tools they need to explore philosophical reading and writing for the first time. Provides insights and strategies for helping readers get started with reading, thinking about, and discussing philosophical concepts and writing short philosophical essays about what they've been reading and thinking; includes a new chapter that illustrates techniques for probing beneath the expository surface of a given question to uncover the inevitable structure of presuppositions and problems underlying it.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This "handbook for beginners" is a book for those interested in "doing" philosophy. It is not a crash course on the history of philosophy and does not deal with key problems in philosophical inquiry. It deals with argument form, basic logic and problem solving. So if you are just getting started, this is a great book to spark your interest and get you going in the activity that is philosophy. I would say that this book should be read, several times, by undergrads just getting started in philosophy. It would be a good book to master before taking classes in logic, epistemology, metaphysics, etc.
